Launch of pharmacy careers 360 videos

The NHS England Technology Enhanced Learning team has developed ‘Pharmacy: A Day in The Life’; the first interactive and immersive series of pharmacy VR360 career videos for 14-to-18-year-old learners.  The videos provide an opportunity to learn about different careers options and pathways by allowing an inside view of the day to day working world of pharmacy teams.

The interactive videos feature scenarios based on real life including pharmacy roles within the community, a hospital, and a GP setting. They have been developed with support from professionals at the Simulation Centre Canterbury Christ Church University, Greenlight Pharmacy (Euston), Barts Health NHS Trust Healthcare Horizons team, Inspiring Futures and East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust.

The videos have been tested by students from UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, a school dedicated to educating young people in Computing, Sport Science, Health & Social Sciences and are accessible via an internet browser and to download on a VR headset or mobile phone.
